This sweet girl is an Alaqua Animal Refuge favorite. She has been at the refuge for seven months and is so ready to find a home. Let’s hear it from Buffy:
My name is Buffy. I’m about 2 1/2 years old, and I have a secret. Try to keep this just between us, okay? I am secretly taking applications for a forever home. Yep, that’s right. I would rather the folks at Alaqua not know this, because it might hurt their feelings, as they have been so kind to me.
You see, I came to Alaqua Animal Refuge this summer with a belly full of babies. Not only did Alaqua help me with their births, but they spayed and neutered all of my puppies, so they wouldn’t suffer like me and wind up homeless and helpless. My puppies all found wonderful homes, thanks to the people at Alaqua, but that’s not all. They spayed me, so I wouldn’t have any more babies, got me up-to-date on my shots, and microchipped me so I would never get lost again. I also had heart worms, so they treated me for that. The volunteers and staff would sit with me during my treatment and give me love and comfort. Now, I am a healthy and happy dog.
They tell me I am super smart, as I follow commands easily. I am selective in my friendships, I will admit, but it’s because I am reserved. I am very friendly though, I walk on a leash like a show dog and I always keep my kennel tidy. My coat is easy to care for. Just wash, let me shake, and that’s it – instant beauty!
